ceeded in making nearly two hundred official visits to the schools 
under my charge.

teachers in charge who are generally competent, earnest, pains-

ers employed in this Commissioner's District, and they are licensed

Normal Schools. Thirty-two hold first-grade certificates. Seventy- 
eight hold second-grade certificates, and twenty-six third grade. 
Respectfully submitted,

68 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

Since the first day of January last I have held eight Uniform 
Examinations for teachers' certificates, at which 124 different candi- 
dates for these teaching credentials have been present. As a result 
of the work done at these examinations I have issued 2 first, 23 
second and 29 third grade certificates. 

The Teachers' Institute for the Second District was held in the Starr 
Institute, Rhinebeck, during the week from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2 inclu- 
sive. The attendance of the teachers was but little less than perfect, 
the only absences being fully excused ; while the work of the con- 
ductor, Prof. Welland Hendrick, and of his assistants was highly 
instructive and interesting. 

Up to the present time I have made 109 official visits, most of them 
in the closing weeks of the school year, which ended on the 31st of 
July past. 

All the schools of the district were in session last year for the legal 
term or longer ; and the same condition is likely to be maintained 
this year, as all are now in session but one, and provision has been 
made for opening that on the 26th of the present month. 

The condition of the school houses is, in nearly every instance, 
excellent. A few are unprovided with modern furniture, but their 
number is steadily decreasing, and we have reason to "hope that ere 
long there will be none. 

Trusting that the above facts may not be without interest to your 
honorable body, 

I am, very respectfully yours, 

LUTHER L. STILLMAN, 

School Commissioner,

Laid over under rule. 

Mr. Brown, from the Committee to appear before the 
State Board of Equalization, presented the following re- 
port : 

To the Honorable Board of Supervisors of the County, of Dutchess : 

Your Committee, heretofore appointed to represent the County of 
Dutchess before the State Board of Assessors and the State Board of 
Equalization, respectfully report : 



162 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

Mr. J. L. Williams, of Poughkeepsie, had been retained as Coun- 
sel by the Committee because of his long familiarity with the subject, 
and on the appointment of the present Committee he was continued. 
Various methods we're taken in making comparisons between sev- 
eral Counties of the State which, in wealth and population, would 
average fairly with Dutchess County. 

These comparisons showed that Dutchess had been for several years 
too highly equalized by the State Board of Equalization. In addi- 
tion to the work alluded to, the bona fide conveyances in all the 
Towns of the County, from July, 1886, to July, 1893, were taken from 
the records, and after comparison with the assessments against each 
sale, and striking out all improper sales, the result showed that upon 
the basis of these sales, each town of the County was assessed at the 
following per centages of full value : 

Amenia. 70 

Beekman 95 

Clinton 85 

Dover 86 

East Fishkill 72 

Fishkill 68 

Hyde Park .80 ' 

LaGrange 84 

Milan 70 

North East 76 

Pawling 79 

Pine Plains 79 

Pleasant Valley .82 

Poughkeepsie Town 76 

Poughkeepsie City 94 

Red Hook 81 

Rhinebeck — 95 

Stanford 85 

Union Vale 69 

Wappingers 82 

Washington 72 

Thus showing an average assessment for the County of . 7990 per 
cent. 



BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. 163 

There was returned to the Comptroller increased assessments of 
real property in the State last year amounting to $160,000,000. A 
part of this was new property and a portion represented increased 
assessments upon old property. 

The practice has sometimes been to spread a certain percentage of 
this annual increase on the whole State or on those Counties having 
a lower assessment than that fixed as the general average of the State. 

Our County took none of this increase. 

The State Board of Assessors very kindly appointed a special meet- 
ing in the City of New York, on the 27th day of August, 1894, at 
which time your Committee attended with Counsel, all the State As- 
sessors being present. Your Committee presented oral and written 
arguments showing and sustaining the position that the equalization 
of Dutchess had been too high. 

The argument of Counsel was subsequently presented to the State 
Board of Equalization at their annual meeting in Albany. 

The efforts of your committee were attended with very gratifying- 
results. The County, notwithstanding the fact that the local assess- 
ors returned increased assessments of real estate, amounting to 
$626,000, the large increase in the State, as before stated, was re- 
duced in the State equalization over $100,000 lower than last year. 

This result has effected a saving to the tax-payers of the County of 
about $6,000.00 

Your Committee are satisfied, from a careful examination of this 
very important subject, that Dutchess County should be equalized 
still lower than for this year. 

This can, however, be accomplished only by following the policy 
of other Counties in keeping before the State Board of Equalization 
the claims of our County, sustained by figures and facts which can- 
not be successfully controverted. 

With the pressure coming from many other counties asking for 
lower equalization the State Board of Equalization cannot be ex- 
pected to understand the real situation in any county unless these 
matters and figures are especially called to their attention. 

Your Committee respectfully recommend that a Committee be ap- 
pointed, with the same power as given to this Committee, to the end 
that Dutchess County may be justly equalized by the State Board of 
Equalization for 1895.

to me the taxes for 1892, amounting- to $11.29, and for 1893, amounting 
to $13.35, assessed against the same person, which I have not paid, for

UNITED BROTHERHOOD OF CARPENTERS )

To your Honorable Body the Board of Supervisors of Dutchess County : 

We, the undersigned Committee, were appointed to present this 
Petition, praying your favorable consideration of building a new 
Court House in Po'keepsie. 

Knowing as we do that such improvement is much needed, and 
believing as we do that such improvement would meet with the 
general approval of the public, and afford great relief to the hundreds 
of unemployed wage workers of this City and County. 

This Petition represents the voice of hundreds of honest mechanics

the morrow, and we in substance are meeting for the last time, a most 
pleasant, and also unpleasant, part has fallen to my lot. In behalf of 
the Board of Supervisors I desire to thank you for the very satisfactory 
manner in which you have presided over this body. Our gatherings 



254 PROCEEDINGS OF THE 

here have been most pleasant and most harmonious, and there has 
been a disposition to help one another. While you from the country 
will return next fall to continue your work, we from the city have 
completed our work, My duties have increased so I cannot hope ever 
to act with you again ; yet my heart will ever go out with you and 
with each and every member of this Board. 

Mr. Chairman, I have now the very pleasant duty to present to you, 
in behalf of this Board, a gavel. May it prove to you a mirror 
reflecting the countenance of each and every giver, and reminding 
you of the pleasant gathering of the present, and of the pleasant 
gatherings of the past, when you are and were surrounded by your 
many friends. May you ever keep this little token, and may it ever 
prove a cheerful reminder of the Board of Supervisors of the winter 
of 1894 and '95. Mr. Chairman, on behalf of the Board, I now present 
it to you. 

Mr. Sleight responded with appropriate remarks, and

Services are required in many cases of various officers, especially 
County Clerks and Sheriffs, for which no compensation is provided

performed, the officer is entitled to a reasonable compensation, to be 
determined by the Board of Supervisors or Board of Town Auditors, 
as the case may be, unless there be a statutory prohibition express or 
constructive.

CHAPTER 402. 

An Act to amend " An Act authorizing the confinement of convicts 
from Dutchess County in the Albany Penitentiary," etc., passed 
April fifteenth, one thousand eight hundred and fifty-four. Passed 
April 13, 1885 ; three-fifths being present. 

The People of the State of New York ,• represented in Senate and Assembly, 
do enact as follows : 
Section 1. The second section of the act entitled " An Act to au- 
thorize the confinement of persons convicted of certain offences in the 



ABSTRACT OF FEES. 413 

County of Dutchess in the Penitentiary of the County of Albany, and to 
prescribe the punishment of certain offences," passed April fifteenth, 
eighteen hundred and fifty-four, is hereby amended so as to read as 
follows : It shall be the duty of every court, police justice, justice of 
the peace, or other magistrate by whom any person may be sentenced 
in the County of Dutchess, for a term of not less than two months, for 
any crime or misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the 
county jail, to sentence such person to imprisonment in the 
Albany County Penitentiary, there to be received, kept and em- 
ployed in the manner prescribed by law ; and such court, justice or 
other magistrate, shall cause such person so sentenced to be con- 
veyed forthwith, by some proper officer, to said penitentiary ; and the 
officers thus conveying such convicts shall be paid such fees and ex- 
penses therefor as the Board of Supervisors of the said County of 
Dutchess shall direct. 

§ 2. This act shall take effect immediately. 

It will be seen from the above section that all costs in cases of mis- 
demeanor are Town charges up to the commitment ; after commit- 
ment, the fees of officers for transporting to jail or penitentiary are 
County charges. Nothing is a Town charge after the prisoner is 
committed. 

Chapter 261 of the Laws of 1854, as amended by Chapter 402 of the 
Laws of 1855, applies specially to Dutchess County, and the fees and 
expenses for transporting prisoner are such as the Board of Super- 
visors of Dutchess County shall allow and direct. 

The fees of officers as fixed by the General Statutes do not apply, 
this being a special act authorizing the Board of Supervisors to fix 
the amount of the fees, and are County charges. 

TOWN CHARGES. 

The compensation of town officers for services rendered for their 
respective Towns. 

The contingent expenses necessarily incurred for their use and 
benefit of the Town. 

The money authorized to be raised by the vote of a Town Meeting 
for any Town purpose.
